New York Rangers
New York Islanders
After failing to secure a playoff berth in their last opportunity, the New York Rangers don't want to waste another chance against one of the league's worst teams - and one they've dominated recently.
New York will try again to clinch a third straight postseason appearance Thursday night in Raleigh by claiming its eighth consecutive victory over the Carolina Hurricanes.
The Rangers (24-18-4) are focused on taking care of business with a win, though they can also wrap up an Eastern Conference playoff spot if ninth-place Winnipeg loses in regulation to Montreal on Thursday. Additionally, New York would qualify for the postseason if both teams earn a point.
"We don't want to back in," said center Brad Richards, who has four goals and four assists over the last four games. "We'll get back to work and still control our fate if we win. That's all we can ask for."
Following a Jets' regulation loss Tuesday, New York missed a prime opportun...

This is not how the Rangers have successfully developed prospects in recent years
The Rangers’ recent success has made Chris Kreider a forgotten man, but the handling of Kreider has been the most disappointing aspect of the 2013 season.
You can’t blame the 21-year-old for hitting a bump in the road, but the organization’s treatment of its prized winger has been a mess since...
When the lockout concluded, John Tortorella‘s New York Rangers certainly didn’t expect to be fighting for their playoff lives in the final week of the regular season. The Rangers were picked by many as a favorite to reach the Stanley Cup Final out of the Eastern Conference, but Tortorella’s club has not been able to meet those lofty expectations.
But with 52 points, the Blueshirts...
Yesterday at practice in Florida, Andrew Gross at the Bergen Record observed that Brian Boyle (right knee) appeared to still be limping and it looked like he was still wearing a brace under his suit pants.
John Tortorella said there were no updates on Boyle, who remains out indefinitely.
...if Boyle is still limping around I find it hard to believe that he'll be back...
RALEIGH, N.C. -- Rangers captain Ryan Callahan scored 2:55 into overtime, and New York rallied to clinch a third straight Eastern Conference playoff berth by beating the Carolina Hurricanes 4-3 on Thursday night.
Brad Richards tied it for the Rangers with 2:57 remaining in regulation after New York blew an early 2-0 lead and fell behind already-eliminated Carolina.

The New York Rangers are headed back to the Eastern Conference playoffs because all the important bounces down the stretch went their way.
One ricocheted off the boards and into the net. Another glanced off a post on its way in.

Yesterday, I posted that with the Whale season ending without a playoff birth, the Rangers will, similar to last season, be recalling some prospects as taxi squad players for the final week and into the playoffs.
Brett Cyrgalis at the New Yor Post says the likely players recalled include J.T. Miller, Brandon Segal, Brandon Mashinter, Benn Ferriero, Dylan McIlrath and Mike Vernace...
When it comes to New York Rangers' fans and the way they view their favorite hockey club, it is always an extreme point of view.
Either fans are in love and ecstatic about their hockey club or they absolutely despise and are fed up with their so called favorite NHL team. There is never a middle ground.
With two games remaining and just one win needed to clinch a postseason...
A bit of deja vu tonight. Markstrom stood strong and the Panthers held on long enough to get their two necessary goals. Give credit to them for doing what they had to.
Nonetheless, frustrating result for the Rangers. With the Jets losing in regulation, the Rangers had the ability to clinch a playoff spot. And with the Islanders losing in overtime, they had the ability to move...

The Rangers are in Miami tonight to take on the Panthers, and can clinch a spot in the playoffs in the process. If the Rangers win tonight and the Jets lose in regulation to Washington, then the Rangers clinch at least the eighth seed. If the Rangers win tonight and the Islanders lose to Carolina, then the Rangers jump to the sixth seed, one point...
That is what New York Rangers' fans must be wondering after watching their favorite team lost to the Florida Panthers by a score of 3-2.
After scoring 18 goals in three games, the Rangers' offense came up one short tonight in Florida. Panthers' goaltender Jacob Markstrom was solid in making 36 saves and him and the rest of his team was able to survive a late Rangers...

Tonight the Rangers are in Carolina in an attempt to clinch a playoff berth. The magic number is at two, meaning any combination of the Rangers getting or the Winnipeg Jets losing two points seals it for the Rangers. That means any Ranger win and they are in. A Jets regulation loss and the Rangers clinch. A Rangers and Jets OTL/SOL and the Rangers are...
The Rangers continued their playoff push, looking for their fourth straight win, in the Sunshine State taking on the league worst Florida Panthers, the same team they walloped 6-1 at Madison Square Garden last Thursday. A win and a Winnipeg Jets loss in regulation at Washington would clinch a playoff berth for the Blueshirts. Despite [...]

...welcome to the playoffs Rangers fans!!!!!!! As has been the case all season, the Blueshirts didn't make it easy on their fans tonight, but who cares. They're in the playoffs and anything can happen.
First Ryan Callahan of the Rangers followed below by Sergei Gonchar of the Senators.
FYI, with the Ottawa win, the top eight teams in the Eastern Conference are settled (Winnipeg eliminated tonight), but some position-jockeying still remains.
